Improper Photography or Visual Recording, Probation Violation, Fail to Register as Sex Offender, Flight to Avoid Prosecution, Possession of Child Pornography
Mark BAUMAN has been arrested many times on various offenses, including Alien Smuggling, Theft, Bad Check Issuance, and Sexual Assault of a Child. The last arrest stemmed from a 2002 incident in which he sexually assaulted a seven-year-old girl over six months. In January 2007, a woman from Guadalajara, Mexico, accused BAUMAN of videotaping her two daughters as they undressed. One of the children later accused BAUMAN of inappropriately touching her.
In March 2007, BAUMAN’s parole officer reported that he had gone missing. Local authorities subsequently issued arrest warrants for Possession of Child Pornography, Improper Photography or Visual Recording, Fail to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements, and Probation Violation (original offense: Sexual Assault of a Child). In May 2007, the US Marshals issued an arrest warrant for Flight to Avoid Prosecution. In December 2010, the US Marshals issued an additional arrest warrant for Fail to Register as a Sex Offender.
BAUMAN has met many women through Spanish-speaking matchmaking web sites, including his third wife, who he met through the FriendFinder web site. He was last spotted in the Austin, Texas area in the summer of 2010. He speaks Spanish fluently and reportedly has strong ties to Mexican and Central American immigrant communities in the Austin area. He has a valid US passport and is believed to be in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, or Colombia.
